Here’s the second of the two part Attention podcast Skype call I recorded with Joshua Porter:
As I listened to the recordings to make the notes below, I came realise two things: Firstly, how much work is still ahead of us to work it out in this attention management space (but it will be fun – and of course, it’ll never end….). Second, it appears that a non-trivial convergence is occurring, one that James Governor recognises and describes as a “quadrangulation of SSE, attention, RSS and OPML that creates the opportunity, no?”. You’ve got it it James, and well put too.
Back to the podcast: again, Joshua’s voice is relatively faint (compared to mine) but is audible – sorry about this.
